Unit 2 - Continuous Charge and gauss's Law
This unit takes the discrete calculations of electric fields from the previous unit but now applies it to continuous charge distributions through integrals. This is analogous to learning about integrals after learning of Riemann sums in calculus. You will also learn about Gauss's Law, perhaps the most important formula in all of E&M, and its usefulness in simplifying complicated charge distributions.
Completing all lessons in this unit takes approximately 9.5 hours.
